Raven Ministries International along with Raven Canada, will be hosting a Memorial Weekend Outreach in Ontario May 27th - 29th. The outreach will begin Friday Night at 7:00 PM at our Raven Training Center in Lindsay, Ontario with a coordinated youth event featuring the Little Brittain Community Church Worship Team with Pastor Troy D. Bohn, Founder/Director of Raven International, as the the keynote speaker.

Following the evenings scheduled events, the team will then take to the streets of Lindsay for a time of street ministry to this small town coping with record teen pregnancy rates and a serious drug and alcohol problem among the local youth.

The Training Center is located at 30 Logie Street in Lindsay. For more information on the Youth Service please contact: Ed & Wanda Baker (Raven Canada Directors) at 905.244.1373

Saturday's outreach will be held just to the south of Lindsay in Canada's largest city, Toronto. Toronto boasts a metro population of over 5 million people. This makes the Toronto Metro Area the seventh largest cosmopolitan area in North America - thus it deals with the same issues facing other major cities (drugs, gangs, poverty, etc..)

Our team will be departing Lindsay at 10:30 AM for ministry in Toronto's downtown area. We plan ministry to the homeless, youth, and various others places in the city. At 7:00 PM we will be hosting "Raven Street Church Toronto" on Yonge Street. Yonge Street once boasted being the "longest street in the world." It is a very diverse area with a very "Times Square" feel on the north end, with the south end toward Lake Ontario being a hot bed for crime, homosexuality and other vice.

We will depart Toronto by 12:00 midnight to return to our base camp in Lindsay.

On Sunday we will spend the day at the spectacular Niagra Falls. This area is not only amazing to behold due to the wonder of the falls - but it is also an incredible place to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the thousands of tourist flocking to this natural wonder.

We will depart Lindsay for the falls at 9:00 AM and will be flexible on our return back from Niagra Falls that evening.

Other Details:

We will be staying at the Raven Training Center Building - bring your cots, air mattresses, sleeping bags, and personal hygiene items. The weather at night will be cool - bring coats, jackets, hoodies. The daytime temperatures will typically be between 60-70 degrees.
